Hi guys, I’m in about week 4 of flowering. I have the plants on jacks321. Gave them the Jacks Bloom for the first week of transition from veg to flower. What do you guys add to the 321 Nutrients during flowering to beef them up? I have my plants in Tupur coco and promix mixed. Some are in the bags that you add water to expand. I am growing a few autos and the rest are regular feminized. Lights are 12/12. Temps are roughly around 74-84F when it’s not super hot outside. Humidity is around 40%. Any help would be amazing!!
No need to add anything else. Jacks does it all. I have added cha-ching, beastie blooms and open sesame but couldn’t really tell any difference. Just keep your microbes fed with something like Tribus and jacks is all that’s needed.
Welcome to the forum.
Feed the same ratio of Jacks Part A, Part B, and Epsom salt from veg to harvest. Adding bloom boosters won’t do much beyond throw off your NPK ratio. A salt buildup which will eventually submarine your root zone pH as well.
Two additions that are worth adding are potassium silicate (silica) and a microbe product.
I really think recharge is worth the money.
Thanks buddy, how do you feed the tribus with jacks?
I’ve seen a lot of talk about recharge. How do you feed and how often?
Once a week for me. 1/2 tsp per gallon. It’s kind of expensive, but goes a long ways. I really like the ingredients in it. I think it’s good stuff.
Thanks, going to look into it more. My local grow store sells it
2 oz. Isn’t very much. They have a size between that and a pound I think. I’d look for that, and if you can’t find it, I’d get a pound.
You should be running silica along with the Jack’s.
Any bloom boost is done at transition so you are well past that point. Jack’s at 3-2-1 is your best bet.
Hi, thanks for the advice. How do you add the silica with the jack321? Do you recommend a specific one?
I use Botanicare but you could use any of them.
Silica is added to water first, then all of your base nutes.
Thanks. I did some research and mostly I see that it helps with growth mainly of leaves. In your experience, have you noticed it help with the colas and bud quality? I read an article how some people say it makes the smoke a little harsher.
Silica helps with nutrient uptake and builds healthy wall structure in the plant. The research I have done on silica recommends to quit using it when the plant is mature it will def. help out with plant and bud quality.
I grow in coco so I’m watering for 25% runoff daily this is what I’m using in addition to Jacks321 the plants are doing good.
Raw Silica (powder)
Mr Fulvic ( rather than tribus)
In pre flower Jacks Bloom,Silica
In flower the same as above but I’ll add in Humic Fulvic Acid, Raw Cane Molasses and Recharge. About every 3rd feeding I’ll do just Jacks with silica for a couple of feedings.
This was super helpful, going to grow supply near me today to see what they have. Thanks brother
Isn’t TPS Billions and Tribus the same thing but different products?
I really don’t know if they are the same or not. TPS is cheaper has a 2 year expiration date rather than 1 year expiration date and seems to work good.
Yeah, this is what i am hearing. I have a bag of the stuff coming tomorrow. I’ve been feeling with Black Strap molasses and top fed with Great White but its not as soluble as the TPS Billions.
I replaced the Tribus with Mr Fulvic the results were better growth. TPS is an addition to the recipe.
